Hey everybody! Yesterday I talked a little about the awesome 1950s comic exhibit that will be on display at the MSU Comics Forum, but today I want to show you the AWESOME poster that Nick Bertozzi, this year’s Forum’s keynote speaker, dropped on us. Honestly, this thing is beautiful.
Look at that puppy, pun intended. The use of negative space is gorgeous and the colors work so damn well! Now I know I included Nick’s bio in a previous post, but I want everybody to be able to check out his awesome work, so here you go again!
